An uninvited tenant has been making the rounds between unattended vacation homes in the North Webster, Indiana area. Apparently, this guy would scope out Webster Lake residences, and if the house looked unoccupied and didn’t have recent tracks in the snow, he figured no one would be around.
So this guy would effectively “move in” [...]

While caught in the act, one quickly man fled the scene and the other ended up cornered by local vigilantes. So what is a would-be criminal to do in such situation? Turn himself into a goat, what else?

What’s luck gotta do, gotta do with it?

Enter the Whale, the Inconspicuous and the Shark

So much for Enter the Dragon, Bruce Lee he is not. Apparently a ninja, or at least a lame attempt at being one unsuccessfully attempted to steal two different ATM machines in sunny Florida over the past few weeks. One outside a bank, one outside a Walgreens.
Authorities in West Palm Beach were reviewing some [...]
